Elizabeth Taylor in Memoriam
“We have just lost a Hollywood legend but more important is that we have lost an exceptional human being“ said Elton John. At her own request Elizabeth Taylor, who died on March 23, 2011, was buried in Forest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles, close to her friend Michael Jackson. Almost 70 years before, at the age of ten, she acted in the film “Lassie” and became a celebrity. In 1993 she received an “honorary” Oscar for her work against AIDS, her third in all.
